Format: Paperback
I like this book because it tells and teach stories about Negative Peer- Pressure, how Drugs aren't good for you, also Violence, Alcohol, Sex, and other. It also tells you the right rout to take, tells you that Alcohol can get you in really big trouble, and if you know anyone that drinls Alchol stay away from them casue it can lead to really bad danger. Also to always have your eyes open to every step you take by yourself or with your friends, cause your friends might want you to go the same path their going, and you can be setting yourself up to get in trouble. So it tells to look and listen and to say no to your friends and keep them at the same time.

Format: Paperback
This is an important read for teens and preteens to learn how to say "no" to all kinds of potential trouble invitations from peers such as gossip, cliques, lying, cheating, drinking, pranks, fighting and so much more! The author has an extensive background in working with teens and preteens and is well versed in communicating in interesting--and even funny--ways so that kids will read this book. Parents, buy this book for your child! It could really help them in making wise choices and learn how to say "no" and "save face."

It really is a great book to read to learn more about how to say no to peer pressure and still keep your friends.

I gave this to my grandson, as he's entering 6th grade and is already quite well acquainted with peer pressure situations. I wrote a note to him inside the front cover....suggesting he always talk to his parents, but that he might get some pointers from this book as well.

I have not looked through it. I bought it as a training tool for some of the younger students in a leadership program.
